seems to be signaling that they're not going to fight hard. >> a win right now given that harry reid, the democratic reid democratic leader in the senate is not going along. a vote would be a political victory in a town that doesn't want to do this. the president is being pragmatic and he's not going as far as progressives would like, but if you can get the votes it's more progress than people think he can get right now. >> john: and in fairness to the president, what toes mean that we're going to win an assaults weapon. the president will win even by losing. harry reid almost lost his job to someone wearing a tinfoil hat hat. so i think that harry reid is going to let this die but that's how the president wins. if the president fights a battle that he knows he's doomed to fail god for bid there is a massacre or the next ten massacres he can point his finger right to the people who killed this bill and say you own this. that would be a political win for this president at a bloody cost. >> cenk: your analysis is right. but if he wanted a legislative and policy victory, of course, wha

and brennan. harry reid said he's not going to recognize the hold. i think it has to be worked out behind closed doors on capitol hill. my understanding is they're hoping for a hagel vote tomorrow. i know brennan has the votes on the floor to win. it is a question of when it comes up for a vote. >> bill: senator feinstein announcing yesterday or this morning that she is scheduling a vote on john brennan in the senate intelligence committee but not until they come back. they're out next week. for whatever reason, right? valentine's day. i don't know. that's presidents' day week, of course. the week after that, when they come back that she will -- she'll schedule a vote. and then tomorrow, the president is going to -- >> chicago. >> bill: and then to florida too, i believe. >> he's taking a little presidents' day get away in florida over the weekend. before then, he's going to chicago. the topic there is what he calls the ladders the middle class the various programs to help get people jobs and better-paying jobs but i think he will also make a big pitch for his gun violence package in chic

, the cabinet battles never ends. senate majority leader harry reid announced friday he'll hold a vote to end the discussion on hagels nomination, forcing the hand of those senators who threaten to delay a vote. current senators roy blunt and john cornyn remind me a lot of gum pee muppets and john mccain, who indicated he'd nominate hagel to the same post if he became president are leading the charge. here's senator blunt. >> you think there could be a delay you didn't this week that means 10 days. you say you think there's enough votes, 40 votes to delay. >> my believe is there are 40 votes, not to set that as the permanent standard, that says it's too quick the end the debate on this nomination. michael: it's unbelievable. the more information these senators claim to want is about hagel's financial history. considering that they're the party that otherwise relishes the anonymity of their super pac donors, they seem too interested in where the former republican senator got his money. >> now we're getting word another nominee will be held up. paul and told u.s.a. today he will consider filibu
the sequester. >> john: but who passed it, paul? senate majority leader harry reid kind of knows the answer to that one. >> 174 republican house members voted for this. 28 republican senators voted for this. this is not the president's sequester. >> john: you killed filibuster reform but that's another argument. mr. obama's bill. though a gang of eight in the senate is working on immigration, president obama has said he will step in if the evident fails. while some republicans accuse the president of failing to lead, a leaked white house proposal on immigration had other republicans calling for mr. obama to stay out. republican senator marco rubio insisted that "if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress." a bill that he pretty much agrees with all of the contents therein and congressman ryan, like the speaker of the house saw more machiavellian mischief from the white house. >> the president on most of these issues and this one now like the others, seems to be looking for a partisan advantage and not bringing the parties together. >> john: loyal oppositi
house and harry reid in the senate have look at this issue of something that's going to be almost impossible. i don't know harry reid can get an assault weapons ban. i don't know there is enough in his conference to get it over the floor. everybody involved in this sees a potentially defining moments for 2014 so where you can say if you have these votes, this guy voted against it or his party voted against it. >> your point, at least get them on the record. right? i want to ask you related, by the way, your calls welcome here on the stayed of the union, which parts you thought were particularly strong what struck you of where he scored or maybe what he failed to mention. violence against women act not to get lost. we talked about it passed the senate overwhelming vote. >> every woman in the senate voted for it. every republican woman in the senate voted for it. >> bill: 22 republicans in the senate joined democrats to vote for that bill. now, will it get a vote in the house? >> it has to get a vote in the house. the republicans are trying to remak
of pressure not only directed at republicans but the number of democrats. by harry reid who i think will rather not bring up a vote on the assault weapons ban. the president was able to move the needle and say look, you're going to vote against something that's fine. but at least be on the record. tell the american people why you have a straight up-or-down vote. i do think the chances of gun control are much better. they don't have to require -- to have a vote in the senate. if they can get a straight up or down bill, assault weapon ban passage, john boehner suggested he may not approve some of the proposals to the floor unless they have majority support. assault weapons ban won't have majority ban. if people support gun control can get the up-or-down vote, they may find some success. that's where it is smart for the president last night. we all talked about the merits of gun control and what not. the process needs to allow the american people to keep members of congress on record on this issue. >> stephanie: thank you for calling me from the train bathroom to have this incredible c
